This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

A student did a research project 5 years previous and determined a percentage of 27% local and sustainable purchases, since that time some policy changes and purchasing changes have been implemented affecting this number an educated guess puts us at 17% currently but our sustainable purchases have increased and some of our local have decreased.

This credit was changed to "not pursuing" because an inventory, list or sample of sustainable food and beverage purchases is required if claiming points for this credit. We do not currently have that. GK
